Meet our students

Recruitment fairs and employer events

We host an annual Graduate Recruitment and Placements Fair to bridge the gap between students and employers.

This year’s event will take place on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 October at The Venue@DMU from 11-3pm. Come and speak to students from a range of subject areas who are interested in graduate and placement roles. 

This is an ideal opportunity to raise awareness of the placement/graduate/internship roles you have available.   

We are one of only a handful of universities in the UK to use the Career Fair Plus App. This enables students to view which employers are at the event and where in the venue they are. 

Book a stand using a credit card. To pay using a PO number, please click here.

If you are looking to recruit students before the fair, please get in touch to discuss how we can support you:

Networking events

We encourage businesses of all sizes and from all sectors to network and share ideas and contacts. To facilitate this, we run events throughout the year, in addition to supporting initiatives delivered by the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce and the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP).

If you are interested in attending a networking event on campus, complete the expression of interest form below and we will add you to our mailing list.

Presentations and workshops

We welcome employers to DMU for presentations, workshops and skills sessions. Students value hearing about your company first hand, which can in turn raise awareness of your recruitment campaigns.

In workshops and skills sessions you can help students with advice, role play and practical exercises.

We can:

  • Arrange a venue on campus
  • Provide audio-visual equipment
  • Promote your talk to DMU students using a variety of channels and targeted publicity - to specific subjects or years of study, if required
  • Arrange interview and briefing rooms

Presentations, workshops and skill session topics might include placement opportunities, CV writing, applying online, interview techniques, telephone interviews and assessment centres.
